Bonanza - Denver McKee

by NBC



Set in Nevada in the 1860's, Bonanza chronicled the adventures of the Cartwright family who owned a large ranch called The Ponderosa. Ben Cartwright and his three sons, Adam, Hoss, and Joe fought for what was just and decent in a time where lawlessness was common.

The widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright had three sons, each by a different wife: the oldest was the urbane architect Adam Cartwright, who built the ranch house. The second was the warm and lovable giant Eric, better known by his nickname "Hoss." And the youngest was the hotheaded and impetuous Joseph or "Little Joe." They all lived and worked on The Ponderosa. Nearby Virginia City helped populate the episodes with guest starring characters from all over America.

Broadcast between September 1959 and January 1973. Filmed by the National Broadcasting Company at Paramount Studios.

Subject: One of the early ones
This was done at Paramount before they moved to Universal. My first job as an electrician in the studios was on Bonanza at Paramount, not this episode. Actually I much prefered watching this on my poor computer monitor, it was not near as jerky as the ones they show on Television, probably the processing from film to digital. Dan Blocker and Michael Landon used to clown around a lot on the set, it was fun. I think the Gaffer's name was Roy Woodside, not sure. Was nice to see Ken Mayer in this episode, he was Major Robertson in the show Space Patrol.
